This link will open a world for you that is rarely seen. (click on the video in the article on the Return of the Cicadas in the Grist Newsletter)
The short film is both strange and magical. Imagine waiting 17 years underground for something to happen~~~oh, wait, we all do that in some fashion, don't we. In western culture many want everything, we've deemed we need/want, right away. And those who wait often feel under supported. Many things need longer gestation.......a lesson from cicadas? What duration are your recurring cycles? I recognize two and ten year cycles in my life........
Finding wonder in the nature of other species abounds. Now to find the wonder in my own waiting?
my love to you all!
